Howdy,

I have a venerable, old Sony 605 ESD CD player that now has wobbly RCA outputs. They jiggle and cause static, and even channel cut out.

I have opened the box and there's nothing to tighten -- it's a single unit that would have to be replaced.

However, the 605 ESD also has an optical digital output that I've never used.

I'm wondering about getting a converter for that to go to my analog amplifier (Denon PMA-770).

Any ideas?

What I'm seeing a lot of is coax, and the digital out on this unit is not coax - it's optical.

Thanks.
N.

Just about all of the audio D/A converters I've seen accept coaxial OR optical. What's your price range?
